Nothing out of the ordinary so far. I caught a 19.5" smallie out of Green Lake again this year. grin.gif I caught one last year that was just under 20".
I suppose you can consider a 13" Rock Bass pretty big.
But so far no big pike or eyes in my book.
I have had a few hit-misses while fishing for pike. They were prolly around 10-15lb fish but I failed to connect with them.

And keep those hooks sharp!

Nothing too special here either... my best have been a 17.5" and 19.5" smallie out of Nest Lake on the same day. Also out of Nest, the biggest walleye of the season was a 23 incher. One interesting catch (well, almost) was a 15-20 pound carp on a tiny Rebel Crawdad crankbait while fishing for panfish. He hit the bait, I set the hook and he just swam right at the boat. When he got to the boat, he just swimming right past. With my ultra light and 4lb line there was nothing I could do to stop him. I fought him for about 15 minutes before he finally took me into the weeds and broke me off. If I hadn't seen that it was a carp I probably would have been pretty upset.

Nothing reel special. Caught a lot of 19" Large mouth out of Norway. A few 8-10lb norts. Don't get me wrong all great fish to catch and release. All in all it has been a great fishing year.

Well over all I think My 3year boy and I had pretty good luck so far. Specially the kid, he caught a 8lb Walleye on a leech last month. The picture was also published on Sat. in the out door section of W.C Tribune. If I can figure out how to post pic on this site I'll be glad to do it.
Other wise I had couple of C&R done for eyes in the 22"-24" range. Consedring the limited times I have been out fishing I call this a good season smile.gif


Later,

J.

Caught a 27 1/2" walleye on the MN river in May. And last Friday aft. got a 21" largemouth on Nest Lake. Both fish are still swimming for someone else to catch!

BTW.....LEECH, that walleye came from just down river about 2 miles or so from the county 6 bridge where you fish.

Hey SPUD, you said you didn't use a boat on the river...just curious if this spot two miles down is road accessable? I know of the gravel road north and south of the river (the scenic roadway). Do you get there from one of those roads? Thanks for any info! LEECH

You get ther off the north river road (renville co. side), but the river is at least 1/2 mile off the gravel if not more. My buddy has a glorified donkey trail that we use to get down to the river. But if it has just got done raining recently you can forget using the trail. It gets a little slick and soft.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!
    • delcecchi
      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
